Visitors to Florence’s Accademia Gallery invariably come for one reason – to see Michelangelo’s magnificent statue of David. David has been on display here since 1873 along with the artist’s Slaves and St. Matthew.
On a trip to the Accademia – originally founded in the 1780s – you’ll also be able to take in an important collection of Renaissance paintings by the likes of Botticelli and Ghirlandaio, the remarkable original plaster cast of Giambologna’s Rape of the Sabine Women, and the charming Museum of Musical Instruments.

exchanged my voucher for a ticket in 5 minutes and walked right in, no waiting till 11:45. It was great, no wasted time waiting in any lines. I did this all over Italy which enabled me to have time to see everything I wanted.
